Bill and Florence Klein with Predella

oil on board, 36" x 24"


This portrait of my parents was inspired by  The Banker and his Wife by Quinten Metsijs, which shows the couple surrounded by objects that tell you about their lives.

The small figures or scenes painted on the predella below the main image form part of the portrait, providing a visual commentary on the  image above and at the same time expanding the event of the central painting by showing the passage of time to the future or into the past.
